      The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is once again participating in the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 28, 2018 to provide a venue for persons who want to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs.


     Sheriff’s Office deputies will host a drop-off station in the parking lot of the Gus George Law Enforcement Academy, located at the corner of Eugene Heimann Circle and Williams Way Boulevard in Richmond (across from the jail complex).

     National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. In October,  2017, there were 4,274 law enforcement agencies that participated. There were 5,321 collection sites and 912,305 pounds (456 tons) of old drugs that were received at those sites nationwide.

     “These events are the best and safest way to get rid of old prescription drugs,” said Sheriff Troy E. Nehls. “This event, conducted nationwide, is an excellent way for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.”

      The first Take-Back event was held in September, 2010
